LETTERS are very effective means of communication for keeping contact with friends and relatives, who live at a distance. Though e-mail and fax have overtaken letter writing, still its significance cannot be under estimated. A letter can be more expensive, emotional and can be preserved for posterity. Formal Letter Informal Letter

 Get to the point! State your reason for writing in your first paragraph and stay on track Always include specifics that will help ease the recipient’s task. For instance, if you are writing to bank mention your account number  If you refer to the other correspondence, mention those by date, check number, etc.gently and respectfully direct the recipient's course of action. Always be courteous! Even if you are frustrated or angry, it will benefit you more to maintain a cool, calm approach

Since an informal letter is personal in nature it should be written in a simple, clear, easy to understand, natural and lively way, like the way one friend/ relative talks to another. While writing personal letters for examination, care should be taken to honour the prescribed word limit (150 words for the body of the letter). WE WRITE PERSONAL LETTERS TO  Express our feelings.  Share our joys and sorrows and those of our loved ones.  Mark social and religious occasions. Acknowledge and appreciate people in our life; to advise them.  Make complaints.  Make proposals, suggestions, etc.  Send invitations, replies to invitations and reminders.
